Falcons’ William Moore released following arrest

Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore has been released from jail
on $2,500 bond following his arrest on a misdemeanor simple battery
charge.

Moore, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2012, was granted the bond during
his first appearance before a Fulton County magistrate judge Friday
morning. Fulton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said
Sunday Moore was released late Friday.

Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos says Moore was arrested
Thursday after officers were called to a Northwest Atlanta address
and advised that Moore and a woman were involved in an argument.
Campos says during the argument Moore ”threw the victim’s phone
and grabbed the victim’s shoulder.”

The Falcons released a statement Thursday night saying the team
was gathering more information.
